Emergency services were called to Lime Street, in Wolverhampton, at around 6.20pm on Thursday evening.

The hit-and-run involved a black Jaguar car and two pedestrians.

One man, in his 40s, was treated at the scene for serious injuries, before being taken to New Cross Hospital. He remains in a critical condition, West Midlands Police have confirmed.

Another man, aged 20, was treated for a minor injury and discharged at the scene.
